In response to a challenge posed on the pages of revcom.us, a number of people wrote responses to an excerpt from the interview with Ardea Skybreak, “SCIENCE AND REVOLUTION On the Importance of Science and the Application of Science to Society, the New Synthesis of Communism and the Leadership of Bob Avakian.” The excerpt is entitled, “Getting Clearer on the Need for Revolution–Breaking With Wrong Ideas and Illusions.” These responses show the difference it can make throughout society as Avakian’s work is increasingly known and engaged everywhere, as people dig into how Avakian understands what is at the heart of the problems confronting humanity in the system at the root of this, when they discover the solution, and the hopeful vision for a radically different and better world on a scientific foundation — this can make a major difference in the world. As Skybreak herself says, “We’ve seen it before, we’ve seen it in previous periods of revolutionary upsurge. The people get better. The people get smarter. The people get more lofty. They dream bigger, and they act in accordance with these bigger dreams. It’s a beautiful sight. And that’s a lot of what BA is actually giving us the tools to accomplish.”
